Tell us about your firm and why you believe your deal was
selected for recognition?
Raintree Financial Solutions has been working with AgCapita for
five years now. Over that time we’ve collectively earned the trust
of investors and helped raise over $20 million for the company.
Agcapita is an innovative investment strategy, which has
delivered outstanding results to investors, all while limiting risk.
What were the benefits of the deal to the Dealer/Issuer and
We think this is an acknowledgement from the market that
AgCapita Farmland Fund continues to be a great offering. By
hearing from our peers that they agree, it is encouraging to reaffirm
that we’ve done something special in the market. We can parlay
that into more great investments and more great transactions.
What was the broader impact of your deal? Has your deal
helped the economy or business sector in some way (e.g.
local, regional or national impact in jobs, investment,
AgCapita allows investors to invest in an asset class that is
unattainable for the average investor. Farming and farmland are very
capital intensive. AgCapita is one of the only RRSP eligible farmland
funds in Canada. It delivers an unparalleled risk/return profile.
Why do you think other firms should nominate their deals for
the PCMA Private Capital Deals of the Year Awards?
We think as an industry, it is important to have a forum to
celebrate success. Closing great deals is a huge benefit for
the market. We think all too often, we forget to acknowledge
our accomplishments. We would like to congratulate all of the
winners of the 2015 PCMA Private Capital Deals of the Year
Awards and thank the PCMA for their industry leadership.
